    Our preschool is a Christian-oriented half-day developmental preschool program for children 2 1/2 years old through pre-kindergarten and follows the Richardson Independent School District calendar beginning the week of Labor Day and closing the third week of May. Classes are limited in size and divided according to birth dates.

    Body Rhythmics

    Body Rhythmics is a developmental program designed to develop gross motor skills within the child. It helps with neuromuscular balance and coordination, which are essential elements for reading, writing, spelling and number readiness. Children spend 20 minutes each day developing the total child through their own learned body controlled movements.

    Chapel

    Preschool classes attend chapel once a month in which a minister or Children's Ministry director leads the children in a short Christian lesson.

    Field Trips

    Field trips are an important part of early childhood learning experiences. They are planned by the individual classrooms. Transportation is provided by church vans or children riding with their own parents. 

    Extended Day

    This program, 11:45 am - 2 pm each day, is offered to children involved in the Preschool and Kindergarten programs. Children bring their lunches and participate in a more relaxed classroom atmosphere for this period.

    Parent Involvement

    Parents are welcome to visit classes. They are asked to provide snacks, assist with parties, and are encouraged to share their talents and hobbies. Parent/teacher conferences are held at least once a year. At least two evening family events are planned during the school year.
